Playlist: Music To Cut Hair To With Kat Richmond


Like all the best girls I know…they are always late arriving at the party and are last to leave.. normally that just means onto the after party.

So finally here she is..Kat Richmond with her 'Music to Cut Hair to playlist’. When I say finally, after a crazy start to the year which left Kat in hospital for a month, I’m so pleased to see she has bounced back to health. 

Us girls are made of strong stuff..

I met Kat when she was invited to play for us (my other life) and we struck up a lovely friendship. Kat is Electronic 17, and is based in Walthamstow. The new borough of culture. She works on the Stow Festival and the Walthamstow Garden Party. Her next production will be Buntu, April 14th at Sedition, City Rd EC, presenting MoBlack.
